Police propose creating a unit for hunting for fake accounts and punishment for insults on social networks

    On April 10, 2015, the head of the public movement “For Security” Dmitry Kurdesov will send an appeal to the Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsov and Chairman of the State Duma Sergey Naryshkin to create a cyber police unit at the Ministry of Internal Affairs and introduce a fine in the Code of Administrative Offenses for creating a fake page on social networks on behalf of a real person, according to “ Izvestia .

    Roskomnadzor monitors pages promoting homosexuality, suicide, information on narcotic and psychotropic substances, explosives. Management "K" is looking for potential extremists and terrorists, is engaged in the suppression of illegal actions on the network. Kurdesov sees the work of the new cyber police department as follows: the unit will receive messages about threats or insults from ordinary users, identify the perpetrators and hold them accountable, even criminal. Now the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation provides a fine for insulting up to 3 thousand rubles, for public insulting up to 5 thousand rubles, and violation of Article 119 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation - the threat of murder or causing grievous bodily harm - threatens with two years of imprisonment.

    Kurdesov proposes to introduce a punishment in the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation for creating a fake account of a real person and publishing comments on his behalf on social networks: a fine in the amount of 0.5 to 2 thousand rubles or an injunction on the use of the Internet.

    The press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation did not comment on this initiative.
    If users begin to be punished for misbehavior in social networks, they will definitely begin to look for other places to commit offenses and crimes, and most likely not virtual ones. Perhaps Internet hooliganism will grow into acts of vandalism on the street - pogroms, desecration of monuments, etc., - he said. - Especially now we are already accustomed to incendiaries on the Internet, adequate people have stopped paying attention to them. Alexander Korpusov, a psychologist, specializes in Internet addiction .

    Fake pages are used to promote goods and commit crimes. In April 2015, a 39-year-old man was detained who, from a fake account, sent messages of a sexual nature to a 12-year-old girl. In March in Moscow, a user was detained who posted inciting ethnic hatred on the Internet and organized a vote against the May 9th celebration.

    Earlier, Roskomnadzor banned the creation of photojacks for famous people and decided to remove Valery Syutkin ’s photo from an article on Lurkmore , and in China since March it is forbidden to use nicknames with the names of foreign leaders and celebrities. Russia is considering a bill providing for two years in prison for the promotion of narcotic or psychotropic substances.
